Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl's labour of love

On today’s musical edition of Encore! we catch up with Sean Lennon and his girlfriend and musical partner-in-crime Charlotte Kemp Muhl as their new album "Midnight Sun" comes out. The pair open up to France 24 music critic Mariam Saab about what inspired their latest album, what it’s like to manage Sean’s mother, Yoko Ono, and whether a Beatles sons' tour is on the cards.

Plus: her milkshake may have brought all the boys to the yard, but will singer-songwriter Kelis’ new serving of sounds on her latest album “Food” continue to tantalise listeners? 

And we take a look at a touching cover of Australian singer Chrissy Amphlett’s iconic tune. A year after the Australian rock singer passed away after losing her battle with breast cancer, her wish for her song “I touch myself” to become an anthem for women’s health has been realised.
